A TRUE STORY NOT KNOWN BY MANY......
The only FOUR (4) Airplanes Israel had when the War of Independence (May 1948) began were
smuggled from Czech Republic. They were German "Messerschmidt bf-109's." They
were assembled overnight in Tel Aviv and were never flight tested.
This is a short video about their pilots. Watch it. You will not be disappointed.
